For their participation in the robberies, Sophia and her sister were sent to the Women's Reformatory in Framingham, Massachusetts, for a period of one to five years.  In contrast, Malcom X, who was called Malcolm Little at the time, and Shorty were sentenced to eight to ten years in Charlestown State Prison (Chapter 10).  Malcolm and Shorty's theft indictment was secondary in the eyes of the racist judicial system - their primary and most inexcusable offenses were their dealings, as black men, with white women.
